I am not sure if they were work but I went ahead and painted them anyway, starting with the mounted figures. We have 20 or so B&B Foreign Legion figures so we can always try a small game with them instead.
There is a lot of detail on these figures if you want to go there, but my eyes are not up to it these days, I think they would benefit from some of the Army Painter dip or similar to bring out the detail, unfortunately, mine had gone rock hard and I am too mean to buy some more at this stage!!
Now painting the Foot figures
